Congratulations, also, to Ms. Steinhart and her 6th and 7th period Health classes for putting on their health fair last week,alongside several nurses from Lehman College's Nursing Department. 
In total about 160 freshmen and sophomores participated, and they shared this feedback: 
"Everything was interesting!"
"Everything was fun."
"Learning about different types of drugs [and] how people could get STDs"

One thing about the fair I enjoyed/found value in was:
"Seeing many things that can be avoided (diseases)"
"That they gave a pamphlet on each subject about each topic."
"One thing about the fair I enjoyed was the games and facts that I learned."
